I have had a few over my life time.. I once thought it would be fun to color my hair.. Instead of seeking out the help of a professional for my "first time"I purchased a boxed dye at a local store.. My hair came out the funkiest shade of orange and I hated it.. Not only was the color bad but I missed a few spots and it was quite noticable! I ended up having to pay a lot of money to have it redone at a salon to my as close to my natural color as possible.. Another time I began very frustrated of my long hair on a hot summer's day.. I decided at that moment I would cut it all off.. I went to a hair dresser and requested a very short bob cut... I think my biggest mistake was making the decision out of frustration and making such a drastic decision.. I hated the new hair cut and it took forever to grow back.. Have you made some bad mistakes and decisions with your hair?

This wasn't my decision. Well, initially it started out as mine. Back in the 5th grade, when big bangs and perms were all the rage, I decided I wanted a perm. That was fine, it looked good, and that's how my hair was for awhile as it grew longer. Just before entering the 7th grade, I had decided that I no longer wanted curly hair. My mom made me get another perm. My hair grows fast but it took the longest time for the perm to finally grow out. I was so annoyed! There was another time when I decided to go red again and bought a shade I thought looked good. I got out of the shower after rinsing my hair and thought hmmm...it looks a bit...Easter eggish. It came out more of a cranberry color. It wasn't the shade I was going for but I had always wanted to try something different, so it worked out. I just wasn't expecting it. LOL

Had a perm too...about the same age as you.. Loved it for the first week and then it was just a big frizzy mess! Yes sometimes you can end up liking the result even if it wasn't what you thought. It is fun to experiment with different things like color..

I bawled like a little baby the first time I cut off my long hair. Then the second time, then the third... I'm not sure why I kept trying it. It's long now and it's staying that way for the foreseeable future. I have also had several run-ins with color. I found out I was allergic to it, that was pleasant. And the last time I tried at-home stuff it came out more "fire engine" than "natural auburn". That's when I gave up and decided that there are worse things than my natural hue. The worst one that comes to mind was a hair removal debacle when I was just starting to become interested in lotions and potions and all that. I was maybe 12, 13? I found an old (and probably expired) bottle of hair remover cream. I decided to try it on my upper lip; it didn't need it but I wanted to try it out. It made my upper lip so soft and smooth I thought, hey, wouldn't it be a great idea to use it on my entire face?! Well, it was not a great idea as I left it on too long and my entire face, save for my upper lip, was a lovely shade of tomato.

lesson learnt? Don't do things on impulse. Wait count to 10 consult people then take a decision. Cheers. Things could be worse.
